    Ok,
    Just want to ask the big question: What does everybody think about SOCKS proxies?
    On the one hand, they will hide your IP address from any RIAA/MPAA people out there who are looking for sharers. On the other hand, they will slow down your connection (I'm on DSL, and using a good proxy, I get a maximum of about 17KBPS). What do you think? Is it worth the trade-off?

    Sorry about this being posted twice. I had an IE problem while posting. Will a moderator please delete one of the posts?

    You shouldn't worry about the RIAA much, unless your uploading like 5000 songs a day. That's pretty much impossible with DSL. I'd rather have the speed than the privacy. Anything else would just be a waste of money.
